Bagger Interview

Houston, TX (US)

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Kroger in May 2014.

Interview Details I went online and filled out the applicant information, sent in my cover letter, resume and list of references. Then I took a personality/skills test online. A couple of days later, I received a phone call from my local Kroger store to set up an interview. I was sent to my regional Kroger store for a face-to-face group interview session. The recruiters there gave me some forms to fill out, asked me a few questions and I got the job. It was a great experience! Everyone there was so nice and helpful.

Interview Question – I had to pick one of my favorite products in the store and show how I would sell this product to others.   Answer Question

Floral Clerk Interview

Floral Clerk
Lawrenceville, GA (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Kroger in July 2010.

Interview Details I started as a cashier and got moved to floral. It's honestly not hard, you apply and if your results from your application are "green", they will usually give you a call if they need a spot filled. I got called in for an interview, they did a background check, I took a drug test, and almost immediately started training.

Interview Question – There weren't any detailed questions asked.   Answer Question

Courtesy Clerk Interview

Courtesy Clerk

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Kroger.

Interview Details Simply applying online and waiting for a response. I recommend looking up who the recruiter is and emailing them that you have applied online it can help. Most likely the orientation is set by groups. Consider the Orientation as a You are Hired at least unless you fail the drug test or choose to decline the job at the last second for whatever reason you choose.

Interview Question – Past jobs, Work Experience, and about you.   Answer Question

Maintenance Clerk Interview

Maintenance Clerk

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Kroger.

Interview Details I first applied to the job online after a friend of mine who worked there said they were hiring. I don't remember how long it took to get a call back. Maybe 3-7 days. I know it was quicker than I expected. The interview was maybe a week or so after that, and it was a pretty quick process. I was asked why I left my former job and why I was looking for new employment. She then told me that they weren't looking for positions I applied for, but they were looking for a maintenance clerk. I said I was okay with that and I was given a drug test. I was told I'd be contacted in about five days, but it was actually almost two weeks before I heard from them again, but I was hired.

Interview Question – If I remember correctly, I was asked what I could bring to the table, so to speak. Since I was applying as a maintenance clerk, I didn't really know what to say.   Answer Question
